Jonathan Miller shares his New Mexico Weaving Experience

This is Carlos Trujillo’s weaving shop in Chimayo, New Mexico, in September, 2016. Mr. Trujillo is an 8th generation weaver, one of a number of weavers in Chimayo who are keeping this Spanish Colonial technique and tradition alive. That big loom you see in the beginning was made by his grandfather as a first year anniversary present to his grandmother. Check out Chimayo Weaving: the Transformation of a Tradition by Lucero and Baizerman for a fascinating history and analysis.
